This upper assembly includes an accurate 18-inch barrel made from 416R Stainless Steel and has 1:10 twist rifling, which is ideal for the 6.5 Creedmoor caliber. The barrel comes equipped with a reliable A2 Flash Hider and has a 5/8"-24 thread pitch to mount other muzzle devices.

M-LOK Handguard of Your Choice

You get two choices of handguards. You can either opt for an Aero Precision R-One or S-one handguards. Both handguards are 15 inches long and have M-LOK slots on both sides and the bottom. The S-one handguard has a small section of Picatinny rail on top of the rail to mount iron sights, as opposed to the full-length Picatinny rail on the R-One.
